Entertainment for what it is
8 May 2013 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I initially only watched this because I saw the ad and Urban Tarzan looked attractive haha.

The main characters are likable and they have a nice story to how they met. Yes I agree with the previous reviewers that it looks like a lot of it is staged but so what? It's entertainment!

I felt myself panic at some moments as they panicked, the scene with the chimp in a shirt and pants holding a gun after drinking cough syrup had me in stitches.

The characters have a great bond and it's easy to relax into the show and be entertained, it's not and doesn't call itself an educational show as such but does make you think of all the idiots that take these dangerous animals into their homes when they don't have a clue what they are doing, if it makes a couple of people rethink their plans then great.

It's worth sticking with and I can't wait for more.
